Randall Packer’s interview of Pie Face for The Post Reality Show: TALK MEDIA!

Here’s that sweet and charming cat, Randall Packer’s interview of Pie Face for his Post Reality Show: TALK MEDIA!,that was originally broadcast well past good milk drinking folk’s bedtimes, on July 27, 2012 as part of the Capital Fringe Festival. Thanks Randall for being so incredibly thorough. This gentleman braved my studio and the girl talk between my model Melissa and me, glitter, feathers, hairspray, powder and the veritable treasure hunt to find the fucking place, in order to get some video footage for the interview. Bravo, hat tipped and thank you! Yeh, my brain and mouth don’t get on too well and they’re even more ill behaved when they have to play with others.



Obsessions in Portraiture

Photographer Kate Reeder braved my hellhole a few months ago to shoot my fetid carcass for her series of obsession based portraits for a show with and a feature

Come to the preview!

I’ll be interviewed via live s(c)treaming interwebs with artist, Randall Packer for the last night of TALK MEDIA! as part of the Capital Fringe Festival.

Alberto and Philippa P.B. Hughes will be on the last show too. I’m in good company!

Randall’s coming to the studio on Monday to film me shooting, or rather, traumatizing some models, so there’ll be some footage of that.
